Hi, is it possible to inherit for Drafting hidden lines the color assigned to specific faces of the model?

RThat is: I have assigned a color to hole faces (with Assign Feature color or CTRL J), I would like to see them in the same color in Drafting views hidden lines. See photo below and file

It does not appear that you can inherit colors assigned to specific faces of the model.  The closest you can get to being able to diverge from the hidden edge color, defined in the style of a view, is to create a "Render Set".  This would allow you to apply different styles to different bodies in a single view.

In drafting it is possible to show the face colors for the wireframe.

 

NX 9:

Preferences (or View Setting) -> View -> Configuration -> Wireframe Color Source -> From Face

 

Preferences (or View Setting) -> Hidden Lines -> Edit Color -> Deselect All Colors -> OK
